Of Coffee and total crashes

If you were having coffee with me, we would be having mango juice, because if life gives you mangoes…..

Actually, if life gives you fruit, any fruit, you must be very careful of what is in the coffee or mango juice you have been drinking; because life is not in the habit of walking around giving people fruit; if its any consolation though, life has not been throwing rocks at you

So life give you mangoes…….

Fridge full of mangoes

  • Peel and slice
peel and slice mangoes
  • Blend
  • Serve chilled

If you were having mango juice with me, I would ask you how old you were when you discovered, for yourself, that a computer hard-drive is nothing more than a shiny, disc…..

.….A super spinny disc turning round and round and every now and then it makes a ticking noise as it turns a little bit slower, turning round and round as your files disappear every now and then until it falls apart, what can I say its total crash of the hard drive

When your hard drive starts making the ticking sound of death, back up your data stat,

The blue screen of death
The Blue Screen Of Death

If you were having coffee with me, I would tell you that, according to a cabinet minister revelation, the Reserve Bank has paid for enough fuel supplies to to cover the next two years so the public should not panic

But given the track record of the state media and government, when they officially say one thing, one starts preparing for the opposite, dont panic they say…….

Meanwhile the president made a clarion for dialogue inviting the 20+ presidential candidates from the 2018 elections to discuss a framework for the way forward for the nation, but the two main contenders snubbed the meeting one citing that a photo opportunity is not dialogue and the word on the street is its like dip tank attendant inviting farmers who own no livestock ….

If the image in the Sunday Mail local paper can be believed then the austerity measures though bitter, are making country better……

sunday mail cartoon, yes a bit better but will make you better soon

If you were having coffee with me I would say hey, its the month of and Valentine’s in a few days, plans? no plans? why cant everyday be valentine or valentines’s for what, isnt that in honour of a beheading? you tell me

St Valentines beheaded

Have an awesome one and happy heart week ♥♥♥♥

  1. Happy ❤ week! I think it is about having someone you feel is worth dying for, but then it got all cutesie with the figure of cupid. It is good to remember where holidays originated, though. ENjoy the mango juice, it looks great! Mine is always store bought, peach-mango juice.

    1. Once you blend your own mango juice, the store bought version will never quite be the same…. oh and you can even blend in random fruit like banana for a surprise to the palate….

  2. You have an awesome week B. Those mangoes though 🥰 looking forward to harvesting mine, they just began to bear fruits.

    If you were having coffee with me, I did tell you our elections are very near and quite frankly, I would like it to come quickly and go. Honestly speaking, I’m not optimistic about its outcomes. It’s the same families all over again from the 60s. What’s the point really 🤔

    1. Hi Mary!!!!
      When its mango season and you manage to blend some juice lemme know hahahahaha

      Election season in Africa is really the most, sometimes I wish they would just scrap the sham of democracy and all the money wasted campaigning, money that could be better used in other things but noooo they want to have their elections and have observers pat them on the back for free fair and credible elections despite all the dodgy tactics anyhoo all the best
      many thanks for dropping by


  3. Ah, mangos have taken over our kitchen because both wife and daughter are on a craze for them. And about that business of the disk drive – I learned about them both in college around 1974 and in depth with my first job in computer manufacturing when I was a tester in 1975. You are right – when they crash, they pretty much destroy the platters in about 1 second. My buddy and I used to torture some very big ones by way of testing the servos. Such fun for a couple of young rowdys.

    1. The season of mangoes, mango jam, mango juice, pickled mangoes, I wonder how many mangoes it takes to turn into one, they say you are what you eat….

      I am curious about the HDDs the solid state ones,on the inside are they simply a bunch of flash memory chips fused together… I know they allow faster transfer speeds and all but to the last longer than this shiny spinny round disky things hahahaha


    1. Hi Russell
      Quick question, when you find out exactly what an HDD was, was it working before and was it working after, apparently once you open it, its pretty much dead unless one knows what they are doing lol

  4. I love mangoes and right now they are most definitely in season. As for the hard drive, I have never really given it much thought…….until now.

  5. I love mangos but I haven’t tried make them into a smooth drink. I think that my boys would love that so I will have to give it a try. As for Valentine’s Day it is of course a regular work day that might end with a family pizza dinner.

    Have a great week!

    1. Yes!!! Do try it and you can make it some nice family fun, peeling and slicing the mangoes, even eating some of them to see which ones would make it taste the best hahaha (FYI it really doesnt matter as you can teak up the taste by adding sugar, citric acid and even water and random banana)
      Family Pizza dinner sounds lovely enough
